The secret motives and decisions of the play are generally confined to the wings where no prying eye or ear, including the spectator's, can perceive them. The stage then becomes an intermediary present between the past and another present happening out of sight but just as significant.
First generation immigrants to the United States have higher fertility rates than natives. This paper analyzes to what extent this factor provides political support for immigration, using an overlapping generation model with production and capital accumulation. In this setting, immigration represents a dynamic trade-off for native workers as more immigrants decrease current wages but increase the future return on their savings. We find that immigrant fertility has surprisingly strong effects on voter incentives, especially when there is persistence in the political process. If fertility rates are sufficiently high, native workers support immigration. Persistence, either due to inertia induced by frictions in the legal system or through expectational linkages, significantly magnifies the effects. Entry of immigrants with high fertility has redistributive impacts across generations similar to pay-as-you-go social security: initial generations are net winners, whereas later generations are net losers.

The AdS/CFT understanding of CFT entanglement is based on HRT surfaces in the
dual bulk spacetime. While such surfaces need not exist in sufficiently general
spacetimes, the maximin construction demonstrates that they can be found in any
smooth asymptotically locally AdS spacetime without horizons or with only
Kasner-like singularities. In this work, we introduce restricted maximin
surfaces anchored to a particular boundary Cauchy slice $C_\partial$. We show
that the result agrees with the original unrestricted maximin prescription when
the restricted maximin surface lies in a smooth region of spacetime. We then
use this construction to extend the existence theorem for HRT surfaces to
generic charged or spinning AdS black holes whose mass-inflation singularities
are not Kasner-like. We also discuss related issues in time-independent charged
